Have you been a victim of a criminal assault and need help obtaining compensation?

If you have been a victim of a criminal assault or attack, our specialist serious injury team will provide both the support and legal representation to successfully pursue your claim.

Experiencing a criminal assault can be devastating and not only result in physical injuries but psychological damage that can be brought on by being attacked.

We may be able to help if you have been a victim from physical or psychological abuse and work to recover any financial losses you may have suffered.

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme (CICA) is a government funded scheme designed to compensate blameless victims of violent crime in Great Britain.


The CICA will consider claims for the following:

  • Mental or physical injury following a crime of violence.
  • Sexual or physical abuse
  • Loss of earnings – where you have no or limited capacity to work as the direct result of a criminal injury.
  • Special expenses payments – these cover certain costs you may have incurred as a direct result of an incident. This would occur if for example you were unable to work as a result of your injury.
  • A fatality caused by a crime of violence including bereavement payments, payments for loss of parental services and financial dependency; and funeral payments.

We may be able to help if you have been a victim from physical or psychological abuse and work to recover any financial losses you may have suffered.
